We were road-tripping from Chania to Nikolaos & wanted somewhere to stop, take a break, explore & have lunch. We chose Rethymnon & I quickly found Castelo as a recommended restaurant. WOW-- we weren't steered wrong. This place has the most quaint, beautiful outdoor seating -- in the midst of old town & under a canopy of flowers, it was... More

This is not a top star restaurant if you want this look elsewhere. But if you want simple well cooked food that is fairly priced everything comes together to create a really good experience. The food is simple but varied and well cooked. It is value for money and the meat content is tender, of good proportions and served with... More

This restaurant is situated in a very nice quarter for eating. We ate chicken, but is was not a good meal and also the wine was not very good. You may better choose for another restaurant

We chose this restaurant one evening as one of our party wanted mussels. Apparently, these were very good, as were all the dishes we ordered. The service was top notch, and as it was a warm evening we were able to sit outside and people watch while we ate. Altogether an enjoyable evening.

We had an excellent lunch sitting in the dappled sunlight under the trees in the narrow street. We had moussaka and stifado, both of which were delicious. They didn't appear to serve carafes of wine, so we had glasses of the house white, which was good value and very good. The service was excellent too. There is also seating inside... More

We enjoyed the restaurant... the kids liked the chicken souvlaki.. special size portion for children. the place is very nice.. sitting in the garden. great lamb chops and fantastic fish on the grill.. The Restaurant is located in the main center of the old city so you can tour around the shops before ir after dinner...

We booked but being the end of season probably needn't have done so but were assured of a great table on the first floor terrace at the rear. Don't be put off by the nondescript entry off the street, walk down the side and into the back street and the courtyard is accessed from that. Also don't be afraid to... More
